Lauren (@AutismMums_Dads) asked today if anyone had any poems to share, this is one I wrote:
“From the moment you were placed upon my tum,
No doubt about it, I was your mum.
My love for you will never falter,
You are my D, my buddy, my daughter.
Certain situations can make you cause a “scene”,
That’s the “thing” about autism, it cannot be seen.
Don’t pre-judge the situation, look at the carer,
Am I shouting right back – or trying to calm her?
Instead of staring, look at my D and smile,
I’m here raising autism awareness…I might be a while.”
Hope you like it. Comments and RTs welcome, as ever Jx
